You cannot create a new instance of the System.Windows.Forms.Help class. To provide Help for an application, call the static Help.ShowHelp(Control, string) and Help.ShowHelpIndex(Control, string) methods.

You can use System.Windows.Forms.Help to show compiled Help files (.chm) or HTML files in the HTML Help format. Compiled Help files provide a table of contents, an index, search capability, and keyword links in pages. Shortcuts work only in compiled Help files.

You can generate HTML Help 1.x files by using HTML Help Workshop. For more information about HTML Help, see "HTML Help Workshop" and other HTML Help topics at tp://
